share events, ideas, inspire, collaborate, enjoy

Time & Place… 7.30 pm Upstairs at The Three Swans, King Street, Frome

Dates for 2018 are at the bottom of this page

Welcome!  The Frome Artists cafe is organised by Caroline Walsh-Waring, an artist living in Frome.  It’s a social evening and a chance to promote your events and exhibitions as well.  A great place to meet  local artists and forge links.  Why not take a look at the last Frome Open Studios Brochure on this website which will have contact details for all the entrants many of whom come to the Arts Cafe on a regular basis.

I do my best to welcome and chat to everyone, but please plunge in and let us know who you are.  If you are brave enough bring along your sketchbook or latest piece of work. No-one is expected to urn up every month, except me, but it would be lovely to meet you at least one or two times over the year – if only to put a face to a name.

Join Frome Artists Café on Facebook (there is a direct feed on our home page) and if you want to receive the Frome Artists Café e-news direct send your details to me: Caroline Walsh-Waring.  Past Newsletters are on the Frome Artists Café Newsletter page, scroll down for News on local and nearby events.
